St. Vincent Pallotti has been knocking on the door of the MIAA C Conference soccer championship game in each of the last two seasons, reaching the conference semifinals both years. With seven starters back and senior laden roster, veteran head coach Steve Shurman is looking for this to be a breakthrough year.
Three of those seniors will be especially key to the Panthers success.
Jose Pesoa is a two-time All-MIAA goalkeeper and along with 3-year starter SJ Oyebade, the team’s center back, will make goals difficult to come by for opponents.
Up top, 4-year starter Alec Jones, another All-MIAA performer, will be counted on to lead the offensive push.
